      Description

      If you try to perform a copy from one sibling branch using an absolute path to
      the current branch inside a working copy, subversion crash 
      
      svn: E200033: database is locked, executing statement 'RELEASE   s1'
      
      
      How to reproduce:
      Checkout project
      - svn checkout URL /home/svn/myproject
      
      Go into a sub-directory of the project
      - cd /home/svn/myproject/A/B/C/D
      
      Try to copy a file from a sibbling branch.
      - svn copy /home/svn/myproject/Z/X/Y/X/myFileToCopy .
      
      Expected result:
      
      File myFileToCopy is copied inside the /home/svn/myproject/A/B/C/D directory,
      which is the current directory.
      
      
      Actual Result:
      svn: E200033: database is locked, executing statement 'RELEASE   s1'
      
      
      Workaround:
      Go to a mutual parent and perform the copy there.
      cd /home/svn/myproject
      svn copy Z/X/Y/X/myFileToCopy A/B/C/D
